Have any previous brides used window panes or chalkboard frames/signage for reception seating charts? Similar to this? http://pinterest.com/pin/32862272256033235/

 

If so, how did you go about setting this up? Any feedback is appreciated!

My friend did a chalkboard like that for her wedding (you can buy chalk markers that you have to wash to get off). She had it standing up on an easel on a table. You could get something similar to this

Does anyone have a suggestions or personal experience about smaller receptions & entertainment? I originally planned on the flamenco guitar for 45 min then a DJ for the rest of the night. Unfortunately, not many of my guests are going to make it & my party is smaller than I planned. I'm worried a DJ is overkill & may end up being awkward for a couple dozen guests. I know its mostly a personal choice but I'd love to hear any anecdotes or opinions about entertainment. Thanks!

Thanks @@HolaAmigos ! Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be anyone in Mexico who rents that out and I don't know who I would bring it from the U.S. To Mexico. I'll figure t out. I still have to hear from one decor vendor L'fante decor rental so, hipeful that goes well!

Hi @@blushxo - why don't you set up an iPod with really great speakers and make a list for the night? Have the flamenco guitar for the 45 min and have the iPod for the rest of the night. Do you have a really animated guest/friend who may be willing to MC on your behalf?

What about something like this? I bought dollar tree platters and painted with them with chalkboard paint, I had these on a table at my sisters wedding shower. They arent too big, you could easliy pack a few of those with some small easels.

I have my wedding booked at Azul Sensatori for April 2016 and I just recently heard that the beach is not that nice at this resort.  Does anyone have any reviews about this? Any complaints? Is it true you cannot go in the water here?  Im suddenly so worried that this will be a big deal for my guests :(

Hi, yes it is very true :( We had our wedding in April and spent 10 days there and we were unable to get in the beach because there is TONS of seaweed and they say that it's the season so no one was able to get in the ocean

did your guests have any complaints about this? does the resort make up for it?  I'm so stressed about this and considering switching despite have paid a deposit already....  Thanks for the response :)

If you feel that uncomfortable, i would probably book a different resort. I dont think "karisma" or any resort would "make it up to you"..i am at a company function now in Jamaica and you would be surprised how many people are NOT at the beach..its crazy. You have tons of time to find another resort. From all the reviews I have read it seems like there is no perfect resort, at least not for us brides

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
